This Is a Small Northern Town

This is a small northern town is the long awaited, first full-length collection of poems by Rosanna Deerchild. These are poems about what it means to be from the north; a town divided along colour lines; and a family dealing with its history of secrets. At its core—this collection is about the life of a Cree girl and the places she finds comfort and escape.
